The lady surnamed Chen is a secretary and due to the nature of her job, she must have her phone with her at all times as her employers expect Chen to reply their messages promptly. Not only that, she was required to move around outside which meant she often had to look at the screen under the sun.

Dr. Justin Bazan, a medical advisor for The Vision Council, said: "With an increase of digital technology, many individuals suffer from physical discomfort after screen use for longer than two hours at a time." But the real thing is, we use smartphones every day and night without thinking about the condition of our eyes.

Since we tend to take our good eyesight for granted, we always forget that smartphones are emitting a blinding level of brightness that is detrimental to our eyes-especially when exposed to it for more than two hours. A 25-year-old woman from Southern Taiwan, who goes by the name Chen, used her smartphone on maximum brightness for two years.



She adjusted the brightness of her screen to the highest level and forgot to lower it after working hours.

At night, Chen would switch off the light in her room and watched some drama series on her phone with the bright screen. She had probably gotten used to it by now and didn’t notice that it was too bright so she did not adjust the brightness.

According to Chen, she started to feel pain in her eyes, which had later become bloodshot. Since the pain just wouldn't go away, she then decided to go to the hospital to have herself checked. The doctor found over 500 holes on her cornea. Dr. Hong said that her eyes were exposed to more than 600 lumens every day in two years when our eyes can only take about 300 lumens per day.

Chen shared that she wanted to see her phone even when she's outside so she would always increase its brightness until she got really used to it.

The doctors recommended us not to turn off the lights in our rooms when using our phones at night.

Aside from that, there are also some applications out there that can actually help you adjust the warmth of the colors in your display.

That way, it can help reduce too much light from entering our eyes.



 According to Chen, she started to feel pain in her eyes, which had later become bloodshot.

It could have been worse.
